Krampus, a poem by Roger Turner at Spillwords.com

Krampus

It’s not Christmas without Santa
Or without the jingle bells
But, in the darkness there’s another
Taking children down to hell

Yin and Yang, a balance
There is darkness and there’s light
Santa on the left side
And Krampus on the right

Parents watch your children
If they’re on the naughty list
Because Krampus is out hunting
And these children are not missed

A myth, or dark reality
A monster from below
Did Johnny just go missing?
Or was he taken down below?

Jingle Bells, both have them
One is joyous, one is not
Santa lives where it is colder
Krampus lives where it is not

Bad children do not fear him
But soon enough, he’ll find them out
With dark hair, claws and cloven hooves
They’ll learn what he’s about

He doesn’t have a favorite
He’ll take girls as well as boys
He doesn’t mind the screaming
In fact, non one hears the noise

So, if a child disappears
And no one seems to care
You’ll know he was a bad one
And that Krampus, well, was there
